Jacques Attali

For twenty-five centuries, Western knowledge has tried to look upon the world. It has failed to understand that the world is not for the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible. Our science has always desired to monitor, measure, abstract, and castrate meaning, forgetting that life is full of noise and that death alone is silent: work noise, noise of man, and noise of beast. Noise bought, sold, or prohibited. Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise.More Jacques Attali [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
François Mitterrand was the last king of France. France today is no longer a truly independent nation, but not yet part of a global European nation. We're in a no man's land. There is a longing for a monarch and a request for a stronger presidentMore Jacques Attali [10/07/2011 09:10:55]

What is called music today is all too often only a disguise for the monologue of power. However, and this is the supreme irony of it all, never before have musicians tried so hard to communicate with their audience, and never before has that communication been so deceiving. Music now seems hardly more than a somewhat clumsy excuse for the self-glorification of musicians and the growth of a new industrial sector.More Jacques Attali [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The first path a human being ever travels is the path that leads out of the maternal womb. Every human being's first labyrinth is that of a woman.More Jacques Attali [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now we must learn to judge a society by its sounds...More Jacques Attali [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man's tragedy is that when he can do something, in the end he will always do itMore Jacques Attali [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In noise can be read the codes of life, the relations among men. Clamour, Melody, Dissonance, Harmony; when it is fashioned by man with specific tools, when it invades man’s time, when it becomes sound, noise is the source of the purpose and power, of the dream – Music.More Jacques Attali [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
